What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

"World" Tour, Take #2!

That's right, Wrecks fans, we are in the process of rescheduling all of the missed stops on the Cake Wrecks "World" Tour! First up is Austin, where John and I will be this Saturday. Yep, never let it be said that we are not devoted to you, our dear, devoted readers. Why, wild strains of bacterial infections cannot keep us away! (Well, not for very long, anyway.)

Click here for details and to RSVP for Austin. Or keep an eye on the right hand sidebar; I'll be updating the links and dates for Kansas City, New York, and Bethesda as I have them.

Thank goodness that John's okay, and making a remarkably fast recovery from those infections! I would never have expected the tour to start again so soon.

Good luck and stay healthy!

Hmm, Austin is pretty close. If I come, will I come home with pneumonia?

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTaylor

The new logo made me laugh out loud for real! That's the spirit! Don't overdo it now, make sure you two get plenty of rest!

Are you trying to kill John?? Poor the Bruised Baby logo, though!

I tell ya, this little cake blog sure hasn gotten exciting lately. Still, I wish John a complete recovery (and Jen continued good health!).

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFlartus

Jen & John,
Your graphic truly cracked me up. Does Ray get credit for this masterpiece?

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

Can't wait to see you in Maryland! We'll be there with our cupcake wrecks and everything! Take care now.

Cake Wrecks 2: Electric Boogaloo. Let it be known that a silly thing like a little potential death can't stop John and Jen!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRev

I'm so glad to hear that John is feeling better, and that you are going to carry on with the tour! I hope I can make the new KC date!

Yay on John being better! My daughter says the first one is the sun setting in the horizon and glowing over the ocean, with sand in the foreground. I guess the squeezy cheez things up top could be clouds. No clue about the Life Savers! The third one....beach umbrella? No clue on the others.

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

The new World Tour (or "World Tour") logo is the best logo evah! Evah! I wish I could go to Austin Saturday, but I'm scheduled to work all day.

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGary

good grief do you never rest!!! LOVE the new world tour logo. So perfect. I'm so glad to hear you are both feeling better and are up to a tour stop.

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

Wow, you guys are troopers! I'll keep you in my prayers that no more "unexpected" things happen.

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda Cullen

Woohoo! Wreck On!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterReam O Rama

I LOVE the new logo! Can we copy it for our books? purty please?

Glad you're feeling up to it.

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRenee

I love your site!! I discovered your it the day before you were scheduled to be in Bethesda, and was upset because I wouldn't be able to attend.. I am so happy that you and John are doing ok, but I am also excited that this tour date got pushed back! I would love to be able to see you guys when you finally come. Best of luck!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSteph N.

Jen, you are insane. And amazing. Please let us know what we can do to help you out, if there's any kind of fundraiser for John's medical bills or anything.

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCarolyn

Really glad to hear that John is feeling much better! Sad because I will be out of town this weekend and will miss your Austin appearance. :( At least I get to vicariously participate through the blog!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCyndilou :)

You need to make shirts out of that new logo. AWESOME.

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda in Austin

I wish you could come to New Haven, CT, at the Yale Bookstore or something, where we would love to be visited by you (for your next world tour, I mean).

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGina

So glad you are both feeling better! Can't wait to see you in Kansas City!

Cake Wrecks "World" Tour 2: The Wreckoning.

Coming to a bookstore near you this Fall.

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterErin

Jen and John- I am en-ex ICU nurse and I just had to write and throw my 2 cents in- PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE be very cautious and careful in your travel plans!! Septicemia is no joke, and you are very lucky to have escaped it as well as you did. John will be weak for some time yet, and needs to take frequent rest brakes. Much less it being flu season- not a good time to be traveling all around, exposing ones self to all those nasty bugs while still recovering from such a nasty illness.

OK, I'll get off my soap box now and just say I'll pray for you and your health. God bless--

P.S. You guys are hysterical, and I love the site!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWendyMom

That new logo is pretty freaking awesome. I hope that future bakers who are making baby mohawk carrot jockeys for these events are going to add that black eye and arm in a sling

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThe Black Dog

Glad to hear you are both on the mend and back to touring! I like your recovering mowhawk baby in the

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLinda

New logo for the (epic) WIN!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKrusho

Woo hoo! You guys ROCK.

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterlizzied

John your dedication is amazing!!!

Is there anyway you could add a stop in Santa Barbara, CA? I know alone in my work there are over a dozen wreckie fans.

Good Luck on the tour and this time lets make sure the only pain involved stems from laughing so hard your stomach hurts.
